A nice collection of ever changing art. Well kept building with friendly staff. I like that it is in an old bank building. I’m disappointed that within three years the membership fees have almost doubled. Too soon for such a jump in price for me.

Sadly, this art museum is a disappointment. Roughly three years old, the museum has developed through a large state grant and various other funding sources. Located in an old bank, perhaps the most interesting aspect of the museum is the vault in which art may...More

I decided to take a day trip to the capital and came across this small museum on Google. It is an art museum focused primarily on local artists from Central Pennsylvania, the Susquehanna River Valley, and the Harrisburg metro area. That said, they also have...More

This Art Museum functions more like a gallery (in that the museum doesn't have a collection it owns), but the exhibited work isn't for sale. The exhibits are juried or curated by staff and board. We enjoyed seeing those that were up in late May...More

We spent about an hour in the Susquehanna Art Museum on an overnight visit to Harrisburg. There's no permanent collection so it's more "gallery" than "museum" which means your enjoyment of the museum could change depending on which couple of artists are currently exhibiting. It's...More

Someone does need to tell Garvin Nuvi that the museum moved from Market Street to North 3rd quite some time ago... And that new locale is simply marvelous. And old bank, complete with vault, has been transformed into a series of spaces and classrooms. The...More

The SAM is in an old bank building, and has a constantly rotating series of exhibits. Most recently there was an amazing collection of African-American art that was moving, beautiful and disturbing, and sometimes all these! The bank vault is an unusual venue for art,...More
